Christopher Ward creates golden Jumping Hour watch

An exquisite new timepiece reflecting innovation and artistic design, Christopher Ward created golden Jumping Hour watch. Crafted as a limited edition piece, it is truly unlike anything the brand has created previously. An elegant dress watch, featuring the magnificent and unique jumping hour complication that was developed for the brand as an extension of the ETA 2824 automatic movement.

For anyone who has not witnessed the brilliance of this timepiece, a jump hour has a standard minute hand, but the hour hand is replaced by an aperture that shows the hour as a numeral. The complication features the current hour until the last possible instant, and then jumps to the next hour. Some complications can crowd the dial and create a difficult to read situation.
